Back pain radiating to legs suggestive off nerve compression usually resulting from disc prolapse. Physical examination, x-ray and MRI spine are required. Please follow up with your primary care provider for further evaluation and management. Meanwhile, take rest and Advil for pain relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
